Charity Fraud..


As I debated how I would title this post, I decided to call it like it is.. there is no way to sugarcoat what is happening among many of the 1.6 million non-profit groups in America.

 I read the details of an article written by the center for investigative reporting, it answered my ongoing question,with all the charities in the world,why are so many starving? The reason is the so-called charities feed their own coffers,while holding costly fund-raisers, giving only 3% of the cash they rake in to the cause. Sadly I have seen the claims coming out of Africa, and Great Britain, of organizations taking large sums of money intended for the starving and homeless. Agreed every business has overhead costs, but many are fudging the books.

First on the list of America’s 50 worst charities was, Kids Wish Network, since they spend less than 3 cents on the dollar helping children. How do so many raise millions in funds? they hire phone solicitors,using the same story, that 100% goes to the cause!. like those who contacted an elderly woman with dementia,within three years she had given 15,000 in donations, being roped in by their pressing stories. The Government should force non-profits to give a standard percentage of all funds to the cause they represent, how can it be a charity when it benefits you?

80% of Americans give to charity, is the heart of America being deceived? I urge anyone who gives to their favorite cause to look them over, and see where your hard-earned money goes. Below is a link to the 50 worst charities in America, if you would like to know who to be aware of. There are some great people in the world, who are truly helping others, so please pardon the nerve that was stricken by those who operate under a smoke screen of doing good.

    My grandmother who passed on to be with the Lord many years ago knew exactly how to tell it like it was in a very Christian way. You have done the same here.
    This is what I like to see. Great post! It is my prayer that others will see it as well and, the show of honesty that went along with it.
    What other so called charity would point people to other charities away from their own?

    God Bless You Mary
